FLAGSHIP PROGRAMS & PROJECTS
This is to celebrate the 19th Cityhood Anniversary of Muntinlupa City on March 1, 2014 in a highly academic way which is reading, making it known to the world that Muntinlupenos are readers. This will have live coverage of the Philippines' largest TV networks and national broadsheets.
Currently, Changhua County Government in Taiwan holds the record for the most number of adults reading to children at a single location with 3,682 adults and 4,047 children.
The request was sent to Guinness on January 18, 2014. Normally, it takes six weeks to process the attempt but DepEd-Muntinlupa got the confirmation on January 21.
Committees were created. Witnesses were contacted. The world-famous Robert Munsch, the Canada-based author of Love You Forever, also responded on January 29 and expressed his support to the activity. The Division is now working on the promotion of the activity and the system of accounting people which will be done using Newton QuickScanner.
Currently, much is still being coordinated but with the dynamic people of the City, not a single concern remains unattended.
The list of invited guests includes Hon. Senator Paolo Benigno ‘BAM’ Aquino, Bro. Armin Luistro of the Department of Education, Undersecretaries and Assistant Secretaries of DepEd, DepEd Regional Director Dr. Luz Almeda, Director Ramon Bacani of SEAMEO-INNOTECH Regional Center, Dr. Melissa Orencia of the Reading Association of the Philippines, Congressman Rodolfo Biazon and Mayor Jaime Fresnedi.
This started as a dream of Superintendent Priscila C. de Sagun when she was still the OIC-SDS of DepEd-Makati. Little did she know that her promotion in Muntinlupa will pave the way in making this dream a reality.
Muntinlupa family composed of the entire DepEd-Muntinlupa, Mayor Fresnedi and all the Barangays, Congressman Biazon, Filinvest City and other private companies are all together moving heaven and Earth to make this event a successful one. (Written by Mrs. Nerissa R. Lomeda)
